Restored Hearts

Our society is obsessed with the past. We love old records, movies and photographs. We restore old cars, furniture, houses, and anything else that can be salvaged, in an effort to recapture the glory of the past.

Back then we didn't have to worry about ozone pollution, the threat of nuclear war, spam, terrorism, overcrowded prisons, huge deficits and AIDS. Back then, life seemed much easier.

Could it be that our desire to restore old things is sparked by a deeper hunger for personal renewal? As we age, not only do we long for new body's, but for hearts that can be restored from their brokenness and pain.

Fortunately, God has already thought about this and is well on His way to making it a reality.

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come" (2 Corinthians 5:17).

God says, "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh" (Ezekiel 36:26).

Right now you can experience the joy of letting Christ give you a new heart!
